Configuring second interface on server connected to Nexus7K

Hi, The server has two interfaces connected to two Nexus7K in VPC. One interface of the server is 10.10.10.10. Can we configure second interface with ip add 10.10.10.11?  Or it is better to bind the two interfaces together with one ip? Thank you

Hi,

Usually, it is better and more common to bind the interfaces together (high availability) and just use one IP for both. This way, you have redundancy in case one of the NICs or one of the switches port fails.

NIC teaming means binding two interface together?

Correct!

That is on the server-side. On the switch side, you may need to configure a Portchannel and put both ports in it. The switches support both.LACP and mode on if you need a Portchannle.
